Taking Multivitamins Before Bed
Whenever convenient: To the best of my knowledge, biotin is equally well absorbed with or without food so it makes little if any difference when you take it- take when it's most convenient.

Is it okay to take unisom natural nights sleep aid(contains vitamin b, calcium, and melatonin)4 hours after taking cipro (ciprofloxacin)?
Supplements: I see no reason to take either one but I would read the label and ask whoever recommended you take them. You must not realize that manufacturers can add anything they want to this stuff and do. Beware. ...Read more

Can I take valerian root at night before bed while taking 25mg Zoloft (sertraline) daily? Is it safe? Or are there interactions?
Be careful: As you say you'd be taking the Valerian at bedtime, the fact that the combo can cause drowsiness, inability to concentrate and dizziness may not be too disturbing - but it can also increase a risk of respiratory depression - so if you have any breathing issues I'd avoid it and if you feel even a bit of such problems cease use immediately. I'd try warm milk or a boring book instead. Best!. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Vitamins: A good multivitamin is a good idea. It's like an insurance policy for when we don't eat right, don't sleep well, or are especially stressed. Go to a good store or get some guidance because the popular brands are typically very week and not helpful. Poor food quality and soil depletion lowers nutritional value w/food today. Ask your doctor for lab test to determine if specific vits are low. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I take a multivitamin and a cranberry supplement before bed and have cloudy urine first thing in the morning with no pain or smell do I need to worry?
Not usually.: Cloudy urine in the morning, often can be due to concentrated urine from lack of fluid intake during the night. As long as it goes away as you drink plenty of fluids during the day, relax. If it does not clear up during the day, you may have an infection, or other problem, and should get checked. Otherwise, if it keeps up, see if taking those meds in the morning stops it, or stop them to see. ...Read more

Hi drs, in taking cipralex 10 mg every night before bed since 8 months, i want to know how can I quit it? Thanks
Gradually: Gradually decreasing the dose can make it easier than suddenly stopping. Try cutting it in half is it is a tablet - if not try taking it every other nite. Then after a few nites go to every other nite if halved it or every three nites if not halved if sleep is not disturbed can go to the next step - need to consult your prescribing doc about this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am taking a drug test tomorrow and i want to make sure i pass. I was smoking pot lightly just a cpl hits before bed at most a small bowl a day ?
Drug tests: If you are smoking a small bowl a day, you are almost certainly going to fail the drug test. If you aren't a long term user, a single episode of light use will pass in 1 - 3 days but if you are an ongoing user of marijuana in any of its forms, then it can take many weeks for the test to turn negative after you stop. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am currently taking 10mg of Lexapro (escitalopram) once a day before bed, is it same to have a few (2-3) drinks occasionally while taking this medication?
Not a good idea: It can lower effectiveness and heighten risk of side effects. Reports of anxiety, extreme sleepiness and worse depression are common. If you do decide to take a chance, limit to one drink and plan for someone you trust to watch you for problems. Plan to have someone else drive if necessary. You're worth taking care of - be safe! ...Read more
My son is being weened off of Zoloft and starting Lexapro. He is taking 50 mg of Zoloft and is supposed to start 5 mg of Lexapro today. Can I give him both medications at the same time? He usually takes the Zoloft before bed and I was wondering if it is s
Medicine changes : it will be fine to transition from one medication to another with an overlap time. You can overlap by removing the Zoloft over a two week time frame while adding the Lexapro (escitalopram) gradually or all at once. It takes several days for the Lexapro (escitalopram) to gear up in the body. Monitor him for tiredness, mood changes and sleep changes. These will go away after the total switch. ...Read more
I did not know of the severity of taking more than 10mg of Laratadine could do to, and took 2 before bed and 2 in the morning. How do I flush it out ?
Melatonin may: Melatonin may help you sleep. It's not a knock you out kind of pill or hormone. It works best if you take it and lay down in a dark room. It won't work very well if you're up and about in lighted areas. Also it can take two weeks for it to reset your circadian rhythm and must be taken at the same time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Will I have withdrawals after taking one 100mg of tramadol/ultram time release tablets for 4 months? I only took one before bed every night.
Perhaps: But your dose was reasonably low and the duration was fairly brief and if you got through days w/ only your nighttime dose, you might do fine. However, be prepared for the need to taper to 50mg/night for a week or two and then stop. Best yet, plan w/ your Dr. I think you'll be okay - but be prepared! ...Read more
Been taking nortriptyline for headaches. Almost a year on it. 40mg before bed. Headaches are better but waking up in mornin & feelin alive is hard?
Side effect possibly: I'd check with your doctor to check into the possibility of the medication causing a side effect that you are not comfortable with and to see if an option exists. I think nortriptyline works very well in many patients to control chronic headaches but certainly I have a number who do not tolerate it well and we have to switch them to something else. Many options so I'm hopeful you'll find one ...Read more
